Rental fees have been established for use of the entire facility or for lease of a single meeting room. Space may be reserved for the entire day, one-half day or by the hour. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.
The rental fee is due at the signing of a lease agreement, along with a $100 damage/clean-up deposit. The deposit will be returned within 10 working days of an event, provided there is no damage and if all trash, decoration,s and rental equipment are removed appropriately.
Dues-paying members of the FMU Alumni Association, faculty and staff who wish to lease The Cottage for private functions are eligible for a discounted rate (excluding the guest rooms). Full refunds will be made on cancellations made to the FMU Foundation Office at least 48 hours prior to a scheduled event. Cancellations made after that time will be subject to forfeiture of the $100 deposit.
Based on an agreement between the university and the FMU Foundation, all university-related special events scheduled at The Cottage are covered through an annual fee paid by the university and will not require individual departmental reimbursement for rental of space (excluding the guest rooms).
